    Local and well-reviewed. Should have everything someone would need.

    Edit - just saw "SOLD OUT"... Must be having some problems with suppliers.

    Apparently pretty good gear. Have a buddy that fitted his home gym with their stuff.

    Based in Calgary. Lots of stuff sold out, and 1 week backlog on orders. Their showroom is closed.

    Good equipment. I am strongly debating on it right now.

    Fitness Depot.

    Ask them to bring everything to 28 points (the lowest they'll go on price without corporate approval).

    What does 28 points mean? Does that relay to some sort of percentage relative to the price or what?

    Ever consider doing bodyweight training? I'm giving this one a try while I wait to go back to the gym https://athleanx.com/xero

    From what I see this is promising because of how the workouts are laid out and the exercise movements are creative. A big part of it is you do super sets and each part of the super set is a variation of the same exercise, no breaks in between them, and you go until failure.

    Sample to show what I mean:

    Can't wait to see when everyone realizes this won't be for just a month.

    I found when I bought weight equipment, I quickly max out then have to buy more weight. My 80lb-120lb dumbbells are useless and are looking for 140lb or higher to continue my PR's. Any where stock this?

    Curious what you want a 140 lb dumbell for?

    Ive seen them at a gym or two. They are made from a bar with small 10 lb weights on them.

    That is one of the hardest things for people right now.

    I’d love it be wrong, but this is going to carry on for a while. This is our generations defining moment, and if it did somehow miraculously cleared up in a month or two.. economically the damage is done. We’re in for a major uphill battle for the next 5years +. Sorry for the negativity first thing in the morning. It’s realism.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age."

    I had the concept2 for about a year and it was a great machine. They keep their value too as I as able to sell it after a year for $100 less then I bought it. Took a couple hours on Kijiji. I could have been lucky though. Also Amazon usually has it with free shipping for the same price as most fitness stores (unless you can get a discount at one).

    Looks like dumbbell sets (adjustable and normal hex ones) are sold out everywhere! I was ready to pull the trigger on the bowflex select tech ones and zero luck!

    I called these guys yesterday. 5 week back order but they will be taking pre orders soon. Canceled my gym membership so might as well use my health spending account on this instead

    This company is happily gouging away if you are desperate. They had a 30lb dumbbell for $87 I think, kettlebells up now. Such shit.
